Arewa Times NG had earlier reported that Nigeria Army has arrested the late Ikonso’s second in command in Imo state, of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB)/Eastern Security Network, (ESN), a 48 year old man, whose name was given as Anwurum Eze popularly known as “Maputo” after trailing him for 9 days.
We can all remember that Ikonso was finally gunned down some weeks ago after a frantic effort from the Nigerian Army proved successful.
Upon his arrest, the Army has accused the suspect of being behind the masterminding of most killings and attacks Imo state, and that he had been on the Army’s wanted list for over three months now, after many arrested members of the Eastern Security Network, pointed that he was their sponsor. Also, the army further claimed that the suspect and the late Ikonso were the only two members of the group that had direct contact with Nnamdi Kanu.
The Army also went further to release photos of the suspect taking pictures with the leader of the proscribed group.
With the recent arrest of Awurum, there is no other explanation that proves that the Eastern Security Network is gradually losing its shape and form.
Meanwhile, a Bauchi-based Islamic scholar, Dr Idris Abdul’aziz, has said President Muhammadu Buhari and state governors would account for all the indiscriminate killings and kidnappings ravaging the country before God on the day of judgement
Idris who is also the chief imam of Dutsen Tanshi Jummat Mosque, during an Eid-el-Fitr sermon at his Eid ground at Games Village in Bauchi, said the killings and kidnappings in Nigeria were traceable to unjust leadership and inequitable distribution of resources to the Nigerian masses.
